Happy 26th Birthday

I celebrated my 26th birthday today. It was a wonderful day. I went to the Calgary Stampede with my Mom and my friend. We spent the day shopping, eating and having a great time. The weather was beautiful with sunshine and blue skies. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

As I love attention any day of the week, but I especially love attention on my birthday. So I was decked out in my special birthday hat and earrings. I wasn’t disappointed as I received a lot of happy birthday wishes. I was even lucky enough to get the tax for free on an item I bought and I also had two rings cleaned for free instead of just one. Yay for free stuff!

I am so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life. As well as celebrating today, I have actually celebrated for the past 2 days too. On Monday, I went out for dinner with some friends and we played a little bit of Poker afterward. There were 5 of us and it was the first time I had ever come in as one of the last 2 standing. I got to split the pot 50/50 because I tied for the win. 😳 Before we started our Poker game, we had a little play time with my friend’s adorable 10 month old boy. He’s so cute and loves to chew on everything. Peter even had some brief play time with him. I have never seen Peter hold a baby and so it definitely pulled at my maternal heartstrings seeing my husband with the little guy! I was freaking out a little bit when it happened. Haha, it must be a sign that we are almost ready for kids.

Wait, there’s MORE! Yesterday at work my co-workers surprised me with a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. It was delicious and unexpected. I wish I had taken a picture of it before we dug into it, but alas, I forgot. Oh well. Just think about the delicious cookie fudge in the centre and you’ll know what I mean when I say it was great.

Again, I am so fortunate to be surrounded by people who love and care about me. I look forward to getting older because I know I will always have these people in my life.

Oh! I knew I shared a birthday with Gale Harold (from Queer As Folk), but I had NO IDEA that I also shared my birthday with Thomas Ian Nicholas (from American Pie), Fiona Shaw (Aunt Dursley from Harry Potter), SofΓ­a Vergara (from Modern Family), Adrian Grenier (from Drive Me Crazy) and Jessica Simpson. Yay! July 10th rocks.

    Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a great day.. I’m kind of jealous! My birthday isn’t usually much of a big deal, but I guess that’s what happens when you’ve been married for so long and have 2 kids – it gets put on the back burner, haha. I turn 27 in October.. maybe I’ll have to plan something for myself. πŸ™‚

    Also, I’ve never had a cake from DQ.. might have to try it!

    Happy Birthday! That sounds like a fun way to celebrate, and that was really nice of your co-workers πŸ™‚ Congrats on the poker game too! I used to play a lot, but I wasn’t very good at it. I’m not good at bluffing, haha.

    Aww, those are cute photos of the little boy and your husband πŸ™‚ I haven’t seen my husband hold or play with a baby yet, even though we’ve talked about kids. It makes me wonder how he’d be with one!

    I’m glad you had an awesome day on your birthday!

    Belated Happy Birthday To You! I’m glad you and your close ones made it an enjoyable day for you. It’s the little moments like this that makes life more meaningful and enjoyable.

    Cute picture of your husband and the kid. I can see why you might get a little…flustered, if I may. It’s a wonderful sight to see be it from your husbands or any friends for that matter. It’ll be an interesting development, I’m sure. πŸ™‚
